  • Streaking

    How That 70's Show avoided cancellation during its first season astonishes me. It is not that these episodes were not good, as they were incredible, but the show catered to such a niche audience (people who like 70's music) and not the masses.

    This was such a great episode for numerous reasons. It wisely tackled such issues as President Ford's fall, streaking and the economy.

    But the reason this show succeeded for so many years was because of the great cast. A strong group of young personalities, coupled with veteran actors like Kurtwood Smith, Tanya Roberts and Debra Jo Rupp. Whoever was the casting director for That 70's Show deserves a cookie.moreless
  • The Best episode of season 1. The guys are going to streak during Presidents Ford's adress to Point Place.

    Kitty hears that Jackie's dad organized for President Ford to visit Point Place to give a speech.

    So, Kelso, Hyde, Eric and Fez decide to do something great at the rally. Something that says that they hate the U.S government and they want everyone to know it..... So they streak. Kitty goes crazy when she starts making to many pies and different foods. Red is going to ask the President a question.

    During the rally, Red goes to ask the question, until he gets nervous, there, the guys decide not to streak because of all the dogs. To help his dad out, Eric streaks (with a Richard Nixon mask), but security dosen't catch him.

    Then Red asks Ford how can he pardon Nixon?

    There, the show basically ends.moreless
  • The four guys plan to rally against President Gerald Ford, who is visiting Point Place. Meanwhile, Bob, who is heartbroken over the fact his daughter won't wear a jumpsuit of the American flag, asks Red to ask Ford a question.moreless

    Clean the house! Bake some pies! The PRESIDENT is coming to Point Place! Jackie's father was part of the reason that the whole thing was arranged; Gerald Ford, who is not liked among many of the residents of Point Place, is coming to the whole gathering to answer some questions by some regular people. Bob asks Red to be one of them, and Red spends hours and hours, (well who knows? it never says how many days go by; and there were the distractions, like when Bob said Red was to ask a question the committee chose for him) thinking of a question. Meanwhile, the four guys, Hyde, Kelso, Eric and Fez, think of a way to rally against the president. Eventually, Kelso has the idea to streak. The gang agrees, even though Eric is practically risking his life to do so; Well, if he gets caught. Eventually at the event, the guys chicken out. But when Eric sees that his dad is stumbling upon his question, he does it anyway. He strips, and runs through the field of people: "Wee wee! Pee pee!" and of course, wearing a very nice Richard Nixon mask. With this, Red gets the confidence to ask Gerald Ford, or Jerry, "How the hell could you parden Nixon?" Mr. Burkhart isn't pleased, but Red doesn't care. And if I was him, I wouldn't care either. Red lost his job, and now he was losing his freedom of speech! Good job on Red's part to tell the president off, about HIS feelings. There was also another small subplot with Donna and her parents. Bob wants Donna to wear a jumpsuit with him and Midge. Bob and Midge will be the stripes, while Donna is the field of blue to represent the American flag. Donna refuses, but after a talk with Kitty, comes anyway to be the left edge of the flag, which makes Bob so happy. To me, sure the outfit may of been embarassing; but Donna has to stop listening to Jackie: she IS hot! And to Eric: good job of streaking. Even though he is never shown, I'm sure your critical friend, Hyde, was proud. If only George Bush had visited MY hometown...moreless
  • Wee-wee! Pee-pee!

    When the current president Gerald Ford comes to Point Place, Jackie's father and Bob decided to make Red the questioner. Red wants to ask his own obscene question, but, no one wants to hear that.

    But that's not the case of this episode!

    The case is, Kelso has an idea of a streak during Ford's speech. Hyde and Fez agree, but Eric isn't so sure. But, he agrees anyways.

    The night of the streak. Red is pumped out of asking bubling Ford a question, and the guys are ready to go streaking. But, *gasp!* they guys decline! And such a waste! Eric was gonna....

    ... wait... Eric? Before Red has time to speak, Eric streaks! Yeahh!!!!!

    ANyways, from the ending, it was pretty awesome.moreless
